Hi Lily Bee fans! Today is the third and final day of our Design Team inspiration using Autumn Spice! We've got some fun inspiration today including lots of cards and a spook-tacular home decor project! So grab a cuppa coffee and enjoy these projects from Danielle, Cindy and Amy!
First up are some gorgeous cards from Danielle. Let's read what she had to say about her cards.I have two fall cards to share made with Lily Bee's new Autumn Spice line. Love the colors! On this card, I used a Papertrey Ink die called Photo Finish Strips to cut the red strip with an Autumn Spice sticker in the middle. Before adhering it, I added a mini clothespin to hang a sentiment, stamped with the new Autumn Spice stamps! Tag is cut with the Tiny Tags die by Papertrey Ink. On the next card, I pulled out my beloved Maple Leaf punch again (by Fiskars, I believe). I have gotten so much use out of this punch! The little fall journaling card was so cute, I had to use it on my card. Inspired by the tab on the top, I cut another tabbed piece with my Desktop File: Inspiration die (center die) to tuck behind from one of the beautiful papers.The mini clothespins were just from the craft supply store, but a fun addition.
I just love how she's created so many of them and made it look like they are flying out of her fireplace cave. Spooky and beautiful at the same time! The layers and the additions of the little baubles on the wings are the perfect touch!
Last up, I have a couple cards to share as well.
For this card, I used the negative space from several leaf cut outs I made using my Cameo for a previous project, to use as the center piece of my card. I used various papers from my Autumn Spice 6x6 paper pad to fill in those leaves and create lots of color and texture. Then I layered a couple different stickers from the Autumn Spice Mixed Cardstock Stickers to create my sentiment in the bottom corner. Sometimes I forget that it's "ok" to cut up printed stickers to create my own look for a project, and I'm glad I remembered that here, because I really like the effect.
For my next card, I used one of the Autumn Spice Index Journaling cards to showcase my sentiment
To give it extra flair, I stitched along the printed banner several times and left the ends loose and exposed, helping to create that celebratory feel.
Then, lastly, I created my sentiment using the Autumn Spice ABC stickers. Using two different colors helps to add "pop" and bring your eye straight to the message. I also accentuated that by using the brown buttons that lead the eye straight down. By using the brown on the deep walnut paper, the buttons add dimension, but don't distract from the sentiment.
I hope you've enjoyed seeing these last few project from our Design Team today using Autumn Spice! Tomorrow, Wendy Sue Anderson will be back to share an Autumn Spice layout with us. Then on Friday we are announcing the newest members of our Design Team here on the blog, so make sure to come back and join us! Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
